Tucker’s City Council met Monday night at Tucker Recreation Center for the first of two called meetings in the month of March.
Council held first reads on two items: amendments to the City’s Zoning Ordinance and adoption of an Elections Ordinance. On the Zoning issue, the changes would seek to clarify definitions of multi-family uses, expand distance requirements for written notices of public hearings and reflect new terminology throughout the Zoning Ordinance. The Elections piece seeks to authorize the City of Tucker to hold municipal elections. Since these were first reads, no action was taken on either item.
Earlier in the meeting, Council heard a report from the Atlanta Apartment Association and The Council on Quality Growth on building construction standards and safety trends in apartment construction. They also heard a report on efforts to boost tourism in Tucker from James Tsismanakis of Discover DeKalb.
The next called City Council meeting is scheduled for Monday March 27. It will begin at 7 p.m. at Tucker Recreation Center.
